Local energy and climate innovators shortlisted for Ashden Awards

Eight African climate innovators from low carbon enterprises are among 11 organisations from across the world showing how clean energy can power up entrepreneurship and inclusive development.

These companies, shortlisted for the 2022 Ashden Awards, are tackling the climate crisis and creating opportunities even in the most marginalised communities.

The initiatives range from solar-powered hubs where refugees can launch businesses in Uganda, to pay-per-use cold storage for smallholder farmers in Kenya, to training programmes helping women launch clean energy companies and careers in Togo.
